English term or phrase: quick floor effect
The usual tests of executive, frontal lobe function are not specific, often impaired in a wide variety of
conditions and we often found them normal in well-established cases of FTD-bv in this and previous studies. It is assumed these tests measure dorsolateral frontal lobe function and this is relatively less affected in some FTD-bv patients with mainly orbitofrontal and temporal lobe impairment, which accounts for the behavioral abnormality. The QUICK FLOOR EFFECTS, as deterioration takes place, further decrease their utility.

FTD-bv stands for Frontotemporal Dementia (behavioral presentation).

Preferiría una explicación o una opinión fundada y no una traducción literal que, a mi entender, carece de sentido. Gracias a todos.

floor effects
A restriction on performance imposed by the physiological or psychological limitations of the performer or by the scoring system, that places a minimum on the score that a performer can achieve in a task. For example, there must be a score of more than zero for a test of reaction time. As a person approaches the floor, it becomes increasingly difficult to improve the performance.
